It was a tale of two halves. Seward built a 9-0 and had two 13 point leads in the first half and led 32-21 at halftime but after an injury to point guard Ricquia Jones, the Lady Saints struggled as the Lady Texans (6-0) outscored Seward 40-23 in the second half in route to a 61-55 win over the Lady Saints in the Green House. It's the third time in four tries the Lady Texans have won a Seward.
Seward shot just 29 percent (7-24) in the second half and 38 percent for the game. Seward committed 22 turnovers. Madison McClain led Seward with 15 points and eight rebounds while Marta Oledzka scored 13 and grabbed 10 rebounds.
Jones injured her ankle in the first half and was on the bench in the second half but did not play. Seward is 4-2 and hosts 2-5 Frank Phillips Saturday night at 6 p.m. on B107.5 and kscbnews.net. The Lady Plainsmen lost to #5 Hutchinson 80-43 Friday afternoon as part of the Billy's/Days Inn Classic.
